Old Time Music Jam
Sunday, August 16, 2026•1:00 pm
Come and hear a cacophony of sound! Guitars strumming, banjos tuning, fingers plucking away at violin strings, until one fiddle takes charge and the courtyard erupts into music without a sheet of music in sight. Old Time music played at the FBOTJ (Fernandina Beach Old Time Jam) blends traditions brought to America by early European settlers and enslaved Africans. Come listen—you might even be moved to learn to play an instrument and become part of the tradition yourself.
